Success isn’t the little victories. Rather, it’s staying in the game. Your booklet adventure is made up of many twists and turns. There are some very high points, and some very low points. Your goal is to always get to the next high point, and to do that sometimes you’ll have to go through a few of the low points.
Simply put, running any kind of business, whether it’s a fortune 500 company or a solo operation, takes a certain amount of perserverance. Many people start a business and then, a short time later they fold up. They either hit a high point and think they’re finished, or they hit a low point and don’t have the stamina they need to make it through.
When you hit a high point – that big deal goes through, or your new product sells out in less than 24 hours, or you got that speaking gig you’ve been trying to get for months – pause for a moment to enjoy it, and then look to your next high point. Likewise, when you hit a low point – you lost that big deal, your new product flopped, or someone else got that speaking gig you wanted – don’t focus on what’s gone wrong. Focus on how to fix it if you can, and then move on to the next high point.
Don’t spend any more energy than you have to on the low points. Spend it on getting to the high points. When you do, you’ll have more high points more often!
